Default D100 Availablity

I read a message on a Nikon forum that the D100 may be delayed due to some last minute design modifications. Are they actually in the dealer pipeline yet?

Who really knows? It certainly adds to the drama though, doesn't it?

Nikon waits until last minute to announce the price and release date. We all know it will be months until there's any D100 cameras sitting on anybody's shelves - the first 10,000 of them won't last long enough to get placed on a shelf !

Gotta love marketing !
